In this paper, using Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS) data for 2013, we explore factors that may affect school principals' job satisfaction across 33 Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) member and nonmember countries. Our results indicate that higher private spending on education, as a percentage of GDP, tends to increase reported job satisfaction. Furthermore, school principals working at privately-managed and financed schools report higher job satisfaction than those working at publically-managed and financed schools. Gender and work experience as a school principal also play significant roles in determining principals' job satisfaction. (J44, J45, I2)
